Transcript - Not for consumer use. Robot overlords only. Will not be accurate.

One of the people you see very often who has held up as a hero Che we're bar. And it's a mention I even have a relative. Who named a child chain eight. It just blows my mind what's wrong with his picture. We're here to provide some insights on this particular issue renowned scholar Paul kangaroo who is. The author of the politically incorrect guide to communism welcomed the broadcast it to talk to you again Paul. Yeah advance while you have relatives in the name of the kids say. It's deeply disturbing. While yet to begin may be what next time you see if I kid you could just column great enemy of mankind that's what Jake called America. Because. Because America the great enemy of mankind. But it but I have but I am sure the parent doesn't know that. No clue whatsoever to explain just for starters year because this is kind of a launching point for this because. A lot of people were celebrating. The anniversary of his death I believe. Can you. In the most charitable way find something that these people find so praiseworthy what is it. Why is it's just there ignorance I mean really got that solid is that they they simply don't now I mean if if they really knew what the man believed. What he preached recertify themselves he called himself bloodthirsty tactic if that's upkeep the strident self. Yeah of this McDowell it was kind of appalled by him and you have to dealt with killer himself Fidel Castro. And I mean he was seen as psychotic. As a psychopath as the sadistic cold blooded killer. And fact Fidel said well I found my perfect henchmen. I've found by him or my area the perfect guy who could run my execution pets and then he put Cheney in charge of the executions senator. Cheney personally executed people. So loud so because the relative name they can get after somebody who has a literal executioner to divide people up against the wall and shot. And and money wasn't shooting them sometimes just refine. He would he would take begun with a with an empty ever a revolver with an empty chamber go up and and then pulled the trigger repeatedly just to make the person sweat the laugh while he was doing it. And then when he wasn't there he he actually. EP -- the executions senator without much of vandalism was that it was an old Spanish fortress in Cuba. So he had the ball removed from his office so he can create a window to be able to watch the executions when he couldn't be present for them to. Does favor them umbrella stand. And well that wasn't enough he actually wanted to fire the nuclear missiles at at the United States in October 1962. And literally launched nuclear Armageddon. And and the Soviets were so horrified by it out at the realization that that Che and Fidel one that wants nuclear war. That that's when Nikita Khrushchev the Soviet dictator collar quality literal midnight Sunday night meetings. Instead get them out get the nets pulled out to the missiles out right now right now right now these guys are insane. They went out bought snoop nuclear Armageddon enough. And so that that's the psychopath that we're dealing wit and people have no idea they have no idea because of the way that they've been educated. This this is just disturbing years so many details like this that are readily available if people were only educated let's go to the broader issue. Up Paul and there are people might ask the question why is it your writing a book about communism cold war's over width. You know we've won rights. Yeah well I mean what for one thing we pitted now the hundredth anniversary of the launch of communism in October 1917. But I mean yeah I mean we've won the cold war on on the battlefield like yes but but I I think the ideological battle against communism. That that's far from finished and then again it's because of bigger and so we now have people. Boren well after the fall of the Berlin Wall they have no historical memory of communism. And they're running around saying really crazy things like it and and you know a whole lot of people you're listening right now argument would pull off the side of the road like you do this fact. 88 disturbingly high number of Americans now it's not a majority thankfully. But it's over quarter. Actually believe that George W. Bush killed more people than Joseph Stalin. Yeah. That was a survey that was done by the victims of communism memorial foundation last October. And you know at a bit and in fact other studies 69%. But millennial last year said that they would vote for a Communists. For president in and the United States so so that I mean that's that's helping out there. We're talking with blocking or he's the author of the politically incorrect guide to communism. And I've been saying this for quite some time in this this disturbs me Paul because. I'm concerned that we're really not talking about these ideas at all we seem to be. Getting caught up in personalities. And trivial disputes over things that really don't matter much. And it's the left and the progressives. Our continuing what I believe is there are progressive manufacturing. System with the educational system with Hollywood. And this poll that you indicated 69% of millennial Los admitting they'd vote for socialist for president. Yeah it's about this on this that this did not happen by accident they've been working at this. That's right that's exactly right and I'm lucky it was it was a cultural marxists in particular yep people from the Frankfurt school Herbert mark two's. George salute Haas it will help Mike and others Antonio cramped seats. It was even before the Frankfurt school but yet they talked about the conveyor belts as they put it. Of Hollywood that academia and media and especially education. Education education education. And they believe that if they can take over the university's. You know up above all I mean I mean that more than anything else. They're naked completely change and revolutionize America. And I had a really kind of correct a quote from Vladimir Lenin that's in the that's one bad. Give me four years to teach the children in this seat that I had its own shall never be uprooted. And and that's quite amazing mindset that over a hundred years ago. And India the modern American University classroom is a perfect testimony that. In four years in exactly the period of a bachelor's degree in the United States and so that's you know we blocked the cold war in the classroom. And now we're reaping the consequences. Some of the things that you point out in your book Stalin alone killed six times as many people as Hitler in it's kind of interesting how we've rightfully vilify. Adolf Hitler but Stalin was worse in terms of the number of people. The Khmer Rouge slaughtered more than a third of the population of Cambodia Communist Eastern Europe and worldwide tortured Christians. Communist Party USA directly controlled by the Soviets. Obama's CIA director voted for the CP USA candidate for president 1980. And unrepentant sixties Eric Communists are educating American teachers today and one of the things that I continue to contend at work against heartbreak here you know less than a minute. What are we doing. In it significant way to put a stop to this ball. What were aiding and abetting and especially by unfortunately a lot of the people listening to me right now. Who are gonna send their kids to the types of colleges that in just a few months let alone four years. Will will pull off this ideological indoctrination so I went to help people you can stay up there. But simply by being more careful about where you sit your kids to college so I can say more about that after the break if you like me. Actually we would like you to hold onto the brick rhetorical Paul kangaroo is the author of the politically incorrect guide to communism. Folks we've got to understand what we're up against this is not a person. This is not a pull it pretty this is an ideology that has to be defeated we'll talk more about this as we continue to Vince Coakley radio program. We talked with Paul kangaroo he's got a brand new book out end. I AM very eager to delve into this because this subject that I think so many people didn't. Britain lulled into a false sense of security about the subject of communism and socialism. Again because they mentioned the Cold War is overweight and yet. In this country right now Paul what do the you mentioned the universities the place where so many. Oh what are the other areas where we're losing this battle. Well I mean I think Hollywood would it would be part of it too I mean you get for example since I mean they're dead. You like a private sit here for half an hour name that name movies on the Holocaust and Hitler. You have to Schindler's List to. I've exist the other that the Holocaust series in the 1970s there was not television. I have as somebody gives you some big ones that you know they've done Ali was that a great job. Thankfully tremendously correctly. Illuminating the evils of nazism. And an Hitler. But they've done nothing like that for communism. You know we're you know where is that do a lot of archipelago. Very Asian Schindler's List right. Why hasn't their been a major feature film on something like that day in the life provided didn't Lisovicz went up which in this millions of people read that book. But the you know Hollywood doesn't do much with that but the but above all I do I do think it's education I mean people. Don't know that say it added the fact that they think that. That more that George W. Bush kill more people than Joseph Stalin and it's absolutely amazing. I I think people out of an old Isabella killed more people that Hitler but I guarantee you they don't know that and Hitler killed probably about ten million. Is somewhat higher estimates on the numbers Stalin killed. Including by Alexander Yakovlev via the chief performer in in the former Soviet Union it was given the job under Gorbachev would count to leave the stuff. He says it's Stalin alone annihilated 670. Million people. Yeah and and that's not as many as Matt how killed I mean now probably killed seventy to eighty million. So you know we're look at that death poll here. In a hundred years several 10240. Million I think that's doubled our combined death tolls of World War I of World War II. And then it lest anybody think that that's ancient history. Look at North Korea is in the news every day it can just took it to people what they go to YouTube and type in North Korea. And watch an unbelievable. Videos of mass numbers of people. Marching and helped Mary and fashion. Tips and these these lunatics they kick him. Cuba Venezuela they Gilbert they're good people who have toilet paper in Venezuela. So all of that's. Should be obvious to people that. Separately if they're not being educated and if they're gonna university just learning about life guy you know sexual orientation and race and gender. Which is you it means that they're being tied that that they're gonna walk out of there a parent and Leo wearing Gucci T shirt. You what's intriguing about this too as we continue our conversation okay anger one of the things that's the striking to me. Is that some of the issues that we've come to a point now were. Just to give an example. We've got Republicans and Democrats. Advocating things like single pay year. And so it it really concerns me because it reminds me of what Khrushchev supposedly communicated years ago. Where he said we don't have to fire a shot he shall we have to do is keep feeding you. You know doses of socialism. And just watched the country crumble. Yeah. Well that's pretty much exactly what at what has happened and that was really the plan of the cultural marxists in particular. End and taking over the university's right. I mean if if they can just focus on that above all about in the Sunday Times because. I have somebody conservative friends and parents. To lobby of this sent their kids to private school teacher who twelve home school their kids. So their kids to a conservative Christian school classical Christian school and then they sent them off to secular you. And have a cut no most of your daughter has been accepted it took to support more I'm thinking gee do you know what they teach it's worth. And Australia I don't know why I've heard data and other you know unbelievably liberal that. They know little Susie was you know she's been Dillinger religious said for ten years in Israel it solid and that makes it comes on the Christmas time. Went with with the new gender and demanding government funding of Planned Parenthood and calling her parents help book called the fascist. And it has sent what. And pocket that happened so quick I had a guy in the actual. Over the weekend not in almost seven years old queued up to meet with tears in his eyes about with the local university get that done whose daughter he couldn't believe it. And yet that's how easily you can lose your kids if you send them to these these horrible indoctrination I'll. Let me ask you this if you were put in the position. In this particular administration. To address some of these issues. What are the things that you would do to begin pushing back to putt off the source of the funding and the government. Oppresses a patient at least in watching our country slip in the socialism. But good question that that's not an easy one. But I'll send out this to those deducted Donald Trump. That UN speech a few weeks ago. Where he made the states that still Whelan in particular. Is that true that statement was tremendous and and he said. You know that the problem in in Venezuela. Is that they're trying to do the same old same old that I always stale and you know Venezuela called their colleague in this 21 century socialism party. And M when you look at it it looks really no different that twentieth century Cobb. Really about it. Ed and so in in this sense. Anyway that are president can kind of use the bully pulpit of the presidency to call well when a failure that is. That helps and yeah Nicholas in the Dora and Venezuela they went nuts when trump did I mean that really bothered them. You know and it almost reminded me of that the Soviets still be apoplectic when Reagan called them the evil empire. The fact that a back thing can be can be very helpful via the megaphone of the presidency you know using it that way. Other than that I am I mean in the I don't nice but I suppose there's other things that we could do as well what of one of the great frustration. Is he young people. To our benefit and so immensely from free markets. You just sit there and they use their iphones that answers surveys are they say that they prefer socialism over capitalism. Yet the bases they just that does this can act. Is unbelievable they think they just don't get that shows it shows out take and they are. By this site guys. Whatever they're learning and whatever they're getting not based spot in whatever they're getting from you know Bernie types. It's it's it's itself out. I have at the end of this conversation I wanna ask you. You wish you read a book like this because this is a pretty it's pretty significant subject you've taken on. What's your outlook for the future do you think. We will come to understand the danger that communism poses that socialism poses. Is their time do you think we're able to push back and prevent our own slide into this. Well I'm not optimistic and really I mean how could it be went. In 2016. A lifetime self professed things socialist name Bernie Sanders. Got thirteen million votes in the democratic primary. And you know first sense of perspective Donald Trump got a record number of Republican votes in the Republican primary he got fourteen million. Just got barely a little more than Bernie. And you know the burning people tell you they think democracy and shenanigans by eighteen Hillary they've by the got the Democratic Party nomination. So I mean the idea that Bernie Sanders I mean you know you Ivins in the world not to remember 1015 years you're right you're like describing to people. That they'll let this sort of political left in America you'd say weather's moderate Democrats like this sound not Bob Casey governor of Pennsylvania. Liberals again like Ted Kennedy and that that'll really extreme Sanders Bernie Sanders yeah we all laughed about. Quietly in the air cavs Bernie. That he gets thirteen million total. And at and I bet people thought it well it's okay I'll let democratic socialists like burn everything that's good. You know what Democrat whether contrasts in style and we're we're we're part of the social Democratic Party or Russia. I'm in. Yet before exported to the majority of the Bolsheviks in the minority dimension X server market is that the the cultural marxism the Frankfurt school call themselves the social Democrats and I would. So Barbara Mari parents in this killing us and I'm not very optimistic. Sobering assessment there from port finger grease author of this book and strongly encouraged to read this I'm very excited about the politically incorrect guide to communism. Debunking the world's worst ideology Paul great to talk with a weekend thanks for your great work. Out.
